      I received an envelope yesterday in my real mailbox, with CD and instructions with big sign Free 1000€ for 60 minutes from Yukon Gold Casino.
      They are saying i can keep upto 200€ of my winnings... hmm
      What i want to know if they are a legit site and how the hell did they get my adress. I guess someone has violated their agreement and disclosed my personal data to a third person.
      I know what most ppl do, they enter their personal data anywhere, but not me i've only joined Pokerstrategy, moneybookers, Full tilt, Party poker and some other trusted poker sites with my real adress.

      Damn it, i wouldn't mind if they'd sent me an email, i could put em on junk mail list, but i hate real mail commercials.

      I got same thing and I installed the software but guess what they didn't let me keep anything.

      I was $200 up which is the amount the letter says allow to keep, however the catch is, to keep the dollars you have to invest the equal amount of dollars, which is not what the letter says.

      I called them and they explained this to me and I quoted what the letter said but they said their terms and conditions state investment is needed.

      Its a big catch and one that is probably breaking advertising rules

      Hey guys, got the same letter a few weeks ago.
      In the German forum there is an older thread about it and pokerstrategy is already trying to find out which of the sites sent this letters.
      Titan Poker is under suspicion but there is no proof.
      I would just ignore the letters and throw them away ;)
      Btw. I would never install any software from a unknown company. And that this 200€ for free thing isn't trustable should have been clear from the start.

      Best regards,

      Well it's too good to be true, so i rather checked with you guys. I am happy to be a PS member.

      I hope you'll find out who broke the Privacy Policy. I've alredy sent a warning mail to Yukon gold support, that they are breaking the rules and that they have to disclose where did they get my personal data. But i doubt they will.

      Ok i received an answer from them.

      I wrote yesterday to Yukon Gold:


      My name is XXXXXXXXX. I live at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Yesterday i've received your envelope at my home adress, containing your commercial and a CD with your casino software.

      Why i am writing this is that i never registered at your site (Yukon Gold) or never agreed to receive any commercial product, real mail or email from you. I'd like to know
      how and where did you get my personal data, so i can pursue the violators of privacy policy.
      And beside that i demand that you immediately remove my adress from your mailing list, because i assume you don't have the right or my approval to send any letters or emails to me. If i enter my personal data anywhere, those sites are trusted.

      I really hope that was only a mistake or misunderstanding and i wish you'll resolve this issue quickly and reply my with proper data.

      Thank you for your time!

      Best Regards!

      Their answer:

      Hello XXXX,

      Unfortunately and with deep regret, it is not possible for us to isolate where your details were obtained. However we can disclose that somewhere along the line you signed up or registered your details with a service and agreed (or choose not to disagree) to the use of your personal information.

      I confirm that all your details have now been deleted from our mailing list.

      No go figure who is a violator. The fact that they don't want to disclose the culprit is telling us that someone broke the privacy policy.
